Andorra vs Hungary predictions, betting tips and match preview

Andorra vs Hungary predictions for their World Cup 2018 Qualifier on Friday, June 9, 2017. Hungary aiming to boost their chances of reaching the WC2018 play-offs.

Hungary are probably unlikely to force their way into the World Cup 2018 qualification picture, but the anticipated victory in Andorra would keep their chances alive.

At the halfway point of the WC2018 Group B campaign, Hungary are 3rd in the table, trailing 2nd-placed European champions Portugal by 5 points with Switzerland (100% record) 3 clear at the top.

Hungary contested the Euro 2016 finals, which was their first major tournament appearance for 30 years, but it does not look as though they will be adding another at WC Russia 2018 unless either of Portugal or Switzerland suffer a dramatic loss of form.

It would be a big shock though if Hungary failed to add 3 points to their tally in Andorra, who remain one of the continent’s weakest international teams. Andorra are unbeaten in their last 2 matches, a 2-0 friendly win away from home to San Marino and a 0-0 draw at home to the Faroe Islands in this qualifying campaign.

Hungary have won the reverse fixture 4-0 in November and triumphed 2-0 away to Latvia, drew 0-0 in the Faroe Islands and lost 3-2 at home to Switzerland and 3-0 away to Portugal.

Hungary will warm up for this match with a friendly match at home against Russia on Monday, June 5, 9:30 PM.

In terms of the Hungary squad, veteran goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly has now retired from international football but their talisman Balazs Dzsudzsak continues to captain the side even though he now plays for Abu Dhabi-based club Al Wahda.

Others who will hope to make their presence felt against Andorra are former Newcastle United defender Tamas Kadar, who is now with Dynamo Kiev, and ex-Watford and Ipswich striker Tamas Priskin (Slovan Bratislava), while one-time Liverpool goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi will expect to keep a clean sheet if he is selected between the sticks.
